The 22-year-old actress will star in an adaptation of William Styron‘s 1951 novel, Lie Down in Darkness, New York online magazine Vulture reported on Thursday.
According to the report, Kristen will be playing the role of Peyton Loftis, beating out Hunger Games beauty Jennifer Lawrence for the part.
While that’s good news for Kristen, there’s still no word yet whether a sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman is in the works and if her philandering director and one-time lover, Rupert Sanders, will have a shot at it.
As RadarOnline.com first reported, Rupert’s wife, Liberty Ross has given a stern warning to the British director that he better not even think about stepping foot on set with Kristen again if he plans to salvage his marriage.
“Liberty let it be known in no uncertain terms that Rupert can’t direct the sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman,” a source revealed.
“They are trying to work things out after he was caught having an affair, and that is one of the sticking points. She just doesn’t want him to ever work with Kristen again.
“Rupert is obviously disappointed because Snow White and the Huntsman was his directorial debut, and he had hoped on building on that with a follow-up after some decent reviews.”
And Kristen’s security on the film is locked, as the source says she will get “preference over Rupert and Universal will just find another director.”
